New update and new giveaway!

Here is a recent pic of lil' miss sunshine, Mia! I know she has her eyes closed but I still loved the picture so I decided to post it. Plus she kept closing her eyes because my flash was so bright which was kind of funny....and I love the curler in her hair and her heart outfit! Mia continues to do well. There are little hang ups now and then but she is growing and happy. She still struggles on learning to eat and until she has the hang of it the feeding tube will remain. She is off her steroid drug, so one less med is good. Plus the steriod drug suppressed her immune system even more so that's a bonus to be off of that! She continues to bring so much happiness to those around her. So many heart families have never gotten to see their child progress to the point Mia is at and that is truly heartbreaking and our thoughts and prayers go out to them.



So on top of the good news that Mia is continuing to do well the original hostess of the 1st quilt giveaway has come up with another one......

A wallet giveaway!



She graciously crafted this handy wallet to continue to raise support for Mia.



Here's how this gorgeous item can by yours....



for 1 entry: leave a comment on this post



for an additional 5 entries: post about this giveaway and/or Mia on your blog, facebook etc or post the help baby mia button (found at the bottom of this blog) or the giveaway button (found in the left sidebar) and be sure and leave a note with how many entries you get and a way to contact you in your comment! This giveaway will run till midnight on Tuesday, March 10th! Good luck! and of course if you have the means or desire to continue to help Mia financially feel free to click on the paypal link to donate to her trust fund! Mia's journey has been heartwrenching, miraculous, faith building and awe inspiring. Thank you to everyone who continues to be a part of it!

Congratulations that Mia is doing so well! Almost 13 years ago friends of the family's son was the first Canadian infant to receive a mismatched donor heart, and he is still doing great. I pray that we will see pictures of Mia doing all sorts of fun things on your blog 13 years from now!
